After a 2009 of victories in rapid succession, the CRG Racing Team intends to keep its momentum throughout this new sporting season, too. Thanks to the new CRG factory, as well as to the new versions of Maxter engines recently homologated, a group of drivers more ambitious than ever and a carefully planned racing calendar, all the ingredients are there for a positive 2010...
Things will begin to get serious a few kilometres away from CRG's stronghold, in Lonato, with the opening of the international season at the South Garda Karting. The Winter Cup - already conquered several times by CRG's drivers - will celebrate its 15th edition from 19 to 21 February 2010 and all the "Men In Black" will be there.
"We really worked hard during the winter break to optimise the performance of the CRG range as much as possible" said the technical team on this season's debut. "Thanks to our new factory in Desenzano del Garda, we now have an infrastructure up to our ambitions. As for Maxter mechanics, they did a tremendous job with new engines. Nothing has been left to chance, either in Super KF, KF2 or KF3!"
After the Winter Cup, CRG will focus its racing efforts on the WSK. "Our team will be at the WSK Euro Series and then at the WSK World Series" declared Giancarlo Tinini, president of the CRG Group. "We have always believed in the success of this series, which fulfils the expectations of both teams and drivers, and what we see now is proving us right".
World Champion and winner of the WSK in 2009, Arnaud Kozlinski is ready for a new season with CRG-Maxter's colours, with Davide Forè on his side in Super KF. "In even years I always do great things and I expect a lot from this 2010 season", Fore' pointed out. "After the winter tests, I really feel confident".
In this category, the team will be completed by Eddy Tinini, who is making excellent progress, and by Felice Tiene, who has decided to return to CRG. Jonathan Thonon will race in Super KF in the Winter Cup, then the winner of the World Cup 2009 will enter the KZ1/KZ2 for the WSK. "Our goal is clear: victory!" the talented Belgian driver declared. As announced, CRG and Maxter will intensify their efforts in KF2 and KF3 with young drivers such as Martinez, Curia, Verstappen, Ziletti and Gerard.
